A Cross-Cultural Aviary
by admin published Dec 08, 2011 last modified Jul 03, 2012 10:06 AM — filed under: , ,
Birds abound in the arts of the ancient Americas. Soaring falcons, fish-eating sea birds, hovering hummingbirds, and brilliantly colored parrots captured the imagination of peoples from Mesoamerica to the Andes. Poised for flight or perched with regal bearing, birds take pride of place on many textiles, sculptures, and jewelry. This section of the exhibition features objects from the Dumbarton Oaks Byzantine and Pre-Columbian Collections.

ExhibitGod's Regents on Earth: A Thousand Years of Byzantine Imperial Seals
by Jonathan Shea published Aug 22, 2012 last modified Jun 28, 2013 10:29 AM — filed under: , , , ,
For over a thousand years the Byzantine Emperor ruled as God's regent of earth. The decisions of the individuals who sat on the throne had repercussions throughout the Byzantine world and far beyond. Decrees, letters, judgments, and commands left Constantinople every day signed by the emperor in red ink and secured with the imperial seal. The designs of the imperial seals provide an insight into the minds and policies of the rulers whose image they bore; they tell us not only how they wished to be viewed by the recipients of their letters, but also how they viewed themselves.
